4x Simultaneous Cutting
4x Simultaneous Cutting
Our recently launched TTL Series offers numerous possibilities to reduce cycle time. One of this functions is Superimpose machining. With this function the movement of the master channel (turret) is added to the slave channel (subspindle); in other words, it makes possible to machine two tool trajectories using the same turret station.
When the geometry of the part allows it, it is even possible to cut with four tools at the same time performing a double balance cutting process. One of the turrets and the subspindle (TOOL 1+TOOL 2) will be programmed with superimpose function and the other turret will be programmed as a single trajectory (TOOL 3), the second tool from this station(TOOL 4) will benefit from the movement of the subspindle without having an ISO code linked to it. 4 tool simultaneous cutting is recommended for roughing processes in symmetrical parts, it should not be used in finishing operations as one of the tools is not controlled.
Programming a superimposed operation should not worry the machine users, CMZ has developed several macros to ease calculation. Tool and work offsets will be transferred to the slave path before starting the combined machining movements. If you need assistance on how to program the TTL our Service Department can assist you.
The superimpose function combined with all the other possibilities that the TTL series offers opens a new horizon of possibilities in process definition.
Don't miss this unique offer, it won't happen again, and it will be valid for a very limited time only.

TTL Series | Applications Demo
CMZ presents their new CNC lathe series TTL. This a new generation of lathe that can be included in the multiturret range together with the TX series. Its rapid speed of 30m/min, milling capacity up to 12,000rpm and machine bed inclination of 60° makes it ideal for bar work. The lathe consists of…
Superimposed thread cutting
This powerful 66mm bar capacity twin turret twin spindle CNC lathe can cut with 3 or even 4 tools simultaneously making the TTL a great machine for producing higher volumes of complex parts. Superimposed machining is made possible by a combination of sub-spindle axis movement in X and Z and 3 programming…
Spindle speed variation
Chatter must be avoided at all costs. Chatter not only produces a poor surface finish on diameters but also seriously limits tool life. Long slender shafts, extended boring bars, thin walls and so on, can present real challenges. Spindle Speed Variation function allows the spindle speed to fluctuate…
Parting Off with Y Axis
Material is a considerable percentage in component cost. In order to avoid large material waste on the cut off, the blades are usually very thin and long, which often lead to vibrations and bad surface finish. The only solution is to reduce the tool overhang to minimise the effect; however, the…
